depaulu "'Change the problem’ works just fine if a child fails a math test and can talk to the teacher or if she has a fight with a friend but has the social skills to fix the relationship. But when the problem is gang violence, not so much. A kid has no power to fix that problem: You can’t fight a raging forest fire with a squirt gun.” Through the Cities Project, psychology prof Kathryn Grant seeks ways to protect urban children from stress.

depaulu Over the next several weeks, we'll be highlighting this year's 14 alumni under 40 featured in DePaul Magazine. We start with Sylvia Garcia, chief operating officer at the Chicago Transit Authority: “With the CTA, I get to see the impact of my work every day. If we don’t do our jobs, people don’t make it to work or to school or home to their kids at night. It’s exciting to be back in Chicago and part of something that’s integral to the city. It’s meaningful work.” #14Under40 #DePaulWorldReady #DePaulUniversity #Alumni #CTA @depaulalumni 5d

depaulu How do you turn an invasive species into healthy pet products and a new Chicago business? “The idea is a mesh of my life experiences so far. I am an avid fisherman and outdoorsman, I love dogs, and I used to be a chef working in some of the best restaurants in the world. I enjoy being active and living a healthy lifestyle, and I wanted to make sure my dogs were eating healthy as well,” says Michael Cody, who wasn’t impressed with the ingredients or the labels on some pet foods. “Is it good for my dog? Does it provide any sort of benefits to them? These were the things on my mind when I was going through school,” says Michael, who earned a DePaul MBA with concentrations in entrepreneurship and sustainable management.

In an environmental sciences class, he learned about Asian carp. The voracious invasive species can grow to over 100 pounds, threatens native species by eating their food, and leaps out of the water, sometimes damaging boats and injuring their occupants.
He was intrigued by this plentiful resource with little commercial use. “Turns out they are extremely healthy and are a delicacy in Asia. With lots of protein, high in omega-3 fatty acids, and no mercury like tuna or salmon often have, Asian carp is perfect for pets.” Now to convert his idea into a company. “DePaul gave me the foundation for everything I needed to know in order to get a new business off the ground. There is a reason their entrepreneurship program is ranked so highly, and it shows in the classes they offer." He launched BareItAll Petfoods in 2014.
True to DePaul’s service orientation, Michael goes further. “We do a lot of work with local pet rescues and shelters to help save as many pets as we can. We provide treats for all the animals at the Anti-Cruelty Society, training treats for the rescue program at the Shedd Aquarium, and we are constantly raising funds and donating them through our BarkBack program to non-kill shelters and rescue organizations.” #pets #dogs #petfood #healthy #sustainable #invasivespecies #AsianCarp #carp #Chicago #business #entrepreneurship #sustainability #MBA #DePaulMBA

depaulu What is DePaul University to you? To us, it’s a world-class education in a world-class city. A school of dreamers, doers and difference-makers. It’s where the campus becomes the classroom. #DePaulWorldReady 2w
  •   shortstach Well, to me Depaul is a hypocritical sausage factory that enjoys the financial benefits from marketing itself as social just oriented and Vincentian, but fails at every opportunity to uphold those values. 2w
  •   christimcguire3 Wow, tell us how you really feel @shortstach! 2w
  •   anacristinapereirat DePaul was the best opportunity and experience in my life. I wish I could stay more than I actually stayed... But it still an amazing realized dream in my life. I already St. Vincent and I learned how to love even more the act of helping... I have no words to describe how I have grown up with DePaul. Thanks to God and those incredible people! 2w

depaulu "Our education is the key to many doors in life.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Student Speech Contest.
